It’s All About The Laker ‘Bigs’

May 31, 2010

Get ready, it’s coming. The hype for this titanic Lakers-Celtics Final is about to dribble its way into your consciousness, non-stop, 24 hours a day. You’ll read and hear and watch items about every player, every angle, every conceivable take. But there is only one that really matters for the good people of L.A. This […]

Angel On The Spot: GM Reagins

May 30, 2010

The pressure now isn’t on any of the Angels’ players. It is on General Manager Tony Reagins. This is his chance to show he is legitimate. This is his opportunity to prove he is more than just an inexperienced, inexpensive hire for the man who is supposedly so free with his money — owner Arte […]

Freak Accident? Must Be The Angels

May 29, 2010

It could only happen to the Angels. This is the only team in major league baseball that could have its best player severely injured at home plate after hitting a walkoff grand slam home run. Impossible, you say? Not for these guys. This is the same team that had Mo Vaughn trip on the dugout […]

Artest Gets The Attention He Craves

May 28, 2010

Ron Artest doesn’t just like attention, he craves it. He’ll do anything he can to get it. He’ll color his hair orange. He’ll shave his head into weird configurations. He’ll say things that are dumb and dumber. Whatever it takes, he’ll do it. He reminds you of a little kid desperately trying to get  his […]

It’s All-Opinions Day

May 26, 2010

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine: Here’s what the NBA’s postseason has really taught us: There is no one truly dominant team out there . . . I’m just guessing, but I’ll bet the Lakers have a few more than 13 free throw attempts in Game 5 at Staples Center tonight . […]

Gentry Outcoaching Phil

May 25, 2010

Phil Jackson is the most sought after coach in basketball at the moment, which wouldn’t be so surprising except for one small fact. The Zenmaster has been getting outcoached and, apparently, out-Zened by his Arizona counterpart, Alvin Gentry, these past two games. It was one thing when Gentry’s gritty but undersized Suns sprung the zone […]

When You’re Wrong, You’re Wrong

May 25, 2010

Sportswriters spend much of their time telling coaches, managers and general managers when they are wrong. It is part of their job. Rarely, however, does a sportswriter admit when he, or she, is wrong. Well, I’m here to tell you today that I was wrong about something. Absolutely, irrefutably, dead wrong. I thought Vladimir Guerrero […]

Celtics or Lakers?

May 24, 2010

We know the Celtics will make the Finals now, and despite what happened Sunday night in Phoenix, you have to think the Lakers will get there, too. So the question is, which one of these fierce, old rivals is the better team? I know Lakers’ fans will disagree, but right now you’d have to say […]

The Brandon Wood Mystery

May 21, 2010

You watch Brandon Wood and his futile at-bats these days, and you have to wonder. Is the Angels’ young third baseman really this bad? Is this a classic case of a kid who could hit Triple-A pitching but simply couldn’t make the final big hurdle to the big leagues? The answer to both those questions […]

It’s All-Opinions Day

May 20, 2010

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine: So tell me again why they even bother to play the NBA regular season? Now that the Celtics sleepwalked their way through the first 82 games and are on the verge of the Finals, even David Stern must be a little embarrassed . . . Villain […]
